Ah...so it possible in Russian you'd have the meaning of the biblical monster alongside the meaning of the animal as you were reading the name.y friend, while Russian, was not a Bible reader and may have been unaware of that.
Interesting point!

Kitty got caught sipping Daddy's beer.

His reaction says it all:  "So, what's your problem?!"

 ;)

p.s.  Just ran across this:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsakzXdOyII  I had a cat who used to like to suckle a moose plush toy!

My own theory would include the fact that the chair's color scheme closely matches the cat, and the idea that the caption primes the viewer's imagination before the eyes properly focus on the image.

Strangely enough when I clicked on that link, it brought me to a different video!

I did find it (after doing some googling).  Something with the lighting me thinks....and probably the caption too!

Here's another one for you to figure out (I'm still doing so! lol):  https://www.reddit.com/r/confusing_perspective/comments/q87g91/my_sisters_hand_passing_through_my_cats_body/

Did you like the cartoon that I had posted about the "tenth life"?  It seems like that it would be up your alley?  :)

Well done!  Hadn't heard of Owlkitty before now.  I see that there's also one of her in Lord of the Rings.  :)

Love it!
I remember well the often constant efforts to retrieve the toys--often having to use a yardstick to flush them out, taking off the protective grate at the bottom of the fridge.  That and having to pull out the metal drawer at the bottom of my stove (heavy from roasting pans)...take it off of the track that it fits into and checking under there too--then having to put heavy drawer back onto its tracks.   ::)

But, would I do it all again?  Yes!  Loved watching one of them in particular enjoying the 1) chase the toy mouse or whatever around the kitchen floor...batting away at it, 2) then playing stash it away under the fridge but still in reach to be able to retrieve it, then 3) alas, can no longer play that game as they had shoved it too far under fridge or stove!  :laugh:
